Ordinarily, we only make one kind of cookie in this kitchen— chocolate chip. In my opinion, all desserts should be a vehicle for the enjoyment of chocolate. However, from time to time, I’ll make allowances. This afternoon, we stamped sugar cookies with our fancy new spring-loaded Cars cookie cutters.
I have no talent for making sugar cookies. I’m no good at flouring the counter or rolling out the dough. Probably sensing the lapse in leadership, Sonya decided to take the rolling pin into her own hands and spearheaded the entire sugar cookie baking effort. These cookie cutters are terrific and easy to use!
Sonya is currently obsessed with cars. Specifically a rookie hotrod named Lightning McQueen. In addition to these cookie cutters, she got a lot of other Cars-related Christmas gifts.
Yesterday evening, after dinner and a tubbie, Sonya got to watch Lightning McQueen compete for the Piston Cup. It’s been such a long time since I’ve seen the movie― I’m just as excited about watching another fifteen minutes tonight! I don’t remember what leads up to Lightning getting stranded in Radiator Springs.
For sugar cookies, these taste really great, especially with a mug of peppermint hot chocolate, and Sonya proudly and accurately got to proclaim, “Look! I do this all by myself!”
